Tickenham St. Quiricus and St Julietta CHURCH, Somerset

This was the last resting place of Henry Burgum, the famous Bristol pewterer. To read an article about him Click Here


TICKENHAM ST QUIRICUS AND ST JULIETTA , has a Norman chancel archway dating from the 11th century, but it is entirely possible the nave walls may be Saxon. The Berkley family added the north and south aisles during the 12th and 13th century and the original tower was made higher during the 15th century. Six bells hang in the tower, with one dating back to 1631.

Julietta, a widowed mother, and her three year old child Quiricus were passing through Tarsus, in modern day Turkey when they were detained on suspicion of being Christian. Governor Alexander had Julietta tortured but she refused to recant her beliefs. It is said the young child tried to save his mother but both were killed. Two statues in the church re-tell the story.

The grave of Henry Burgum is hidden under a carpet in the church itself and an inscription near the font in the south aisle has since been destroyed. It read - "Henry Burgum of the city of Bristol, Pewterer".
